Accelerating education for the SDGs in higher education
Virtual regional workshop, 9 & 10 February 2021
This virtual workshop discussed how we can accelerate education for the SDGs across higher education institutions in the Australia, New Zealand & Pacific region, with a focus on whole-of-institution approaches. We shared inspiring initiatives from our region and brainstormed opportunities to further accelerate action.
An overview of the agenda is below. The full agenda can be downloaded here.
Day 1: Setting the scene & Education for the SDGs in the classroom
